PSMGA Optional Side Games (Closest to the Pin & Hole-in-One)

Updated 2/7/2017 (Added clearer definition of hole-in-one payout policy)

The following optional side games will apply to all PSMGA tournaments.  These rules have been reviewed and approved by the Executive Board and may be amended as necessary by the Board. 

All participants must be a  PSMGA member with the current year dues paid.

Closest-to-the-Pin (CTP) on 4 Par 3's

1. ENTRY FEE:  $4.00,  $1.00 for each Par 3. Sign up in the Pecan Hollow Grille. 
2. WINNERS:  Cash payouts after the tournament in the Pecan Hollow Grille. 
3. TWO FLIGHTS:  FLIGHT #1: 0-17 handicaps and Callaway. FLIGHT #2: 18+ handicaps. 
4. CANCELLATION: If a tournament is cancelled at any time due to inclement weather, etc; there will be no CTP payouts. 
5. REFUND POLICY: CTP entry fees will be refunded for 30 minutes ONLY, immediately after the tournament is canceled. Any non-refunded fees will serve as the beginning entry list for the next scheduled tournament (Monday for Silver Tee or Thursday for Gold Tee), and no further refunds will be made. 
6. NO LIABILITY: PSMGA and Pecan Hollow assume NO LIABILITY for missing payouts if not collected on the day of the tournament.

NOTICE: It is the member’s responsibility to enter the correct flight. Failure to do so will result in non-payment. Entering the member’s name on the wrong proximity marker, will nullify the member from that hole. The playing partners must assist to ensure the proper names are entered onto the proximity markers. If a proximity marker is moved for putting, etc; mark that spot and then ensure to return the marker to the original spot.  

Hole In One (HIO)

1. Entry fee is $1.00 and sign-up is in the Pecan Hollow Grille.
2. HIOs may be made on any hole on the course.
3. Every HIO must be witnessed in order to receive the payout.
4. An HIO
 is valid once made.  If a tournament is subsequently canceled at any time (including inclement weather, etc.) it is still a Hole in One.
5. The payout for a 
Hole in One is the amount in the pot on that day, not to exceed a maximum payout of $1,500.
6. Multiple HOIs on the same day will equally share the amount in the pot on that day, not to exceed $1,500 per Hole in One.
7. The HIO payout will be awarded by check at the next tournament.
8. If the tournament, ONCE STARTED, is canceled due to inclement weather, etc.; the Hole in One entry fee is not refunded.
